2020 CSA Options

What is CSA? 

Community Supported Agriculture is a direct connection between YOU and OUR FARM.

CSA members make a commitment to the farm by purchasing a “share” of the harvest in advance of the growing season.

This upfront commitment from you provides our farm with the capital we need early in the year – to buy seeds and supplies, and get our fields planted in the spring. In return, members receive a  “share” of the farm’s harvest — fresh, in-season, high quality, organic vegetables grown and harvested right here on our farm.  Read on for an overview of the types of shares we are offering in 2020.

THE WEEKLY VEGETABLE SHARE

SOLD OUT FOR 2020

Stout Oak Farm offers Certified Organic Weekly Vegetable CSA shares for pick up at our Farm Store.  The CSA runs for 18 weeks, starting  in early June. Pick up days are Tuesdays from 2:00 – 6:00pm OR Saturdays from 9:00am – 12:00. Members pick up on the same day each week.

Each week, our popular pre-boxed CSA shares contain 8 to 10 different crops, reflecting what’s in season on the farm. Our CSA is known for its top quality, very clean, organic vegetables!  We grow over 50 different crops, including many heirloom varieties. The shares are designed for one household, and typically feed 2 – 4 people.  The cost is $555 for the 18-week season.  We have 80 Weekly Vegetable Shares available for the 2020 season.

What you get:

  • Weekly share boxed just for you:  A weekly supply of fresh, high quality, organic, in-season vegetables grown here at our farm! 8 to 10 items per week ($31+ average value per week)
  • Weekly email with recipes, vegetable glossary, and farm news.
  • Tip Sheets to help you become a CSA Master!  Food storage tips, kitchen tricks, menu strategies and more.
  • Access to our private CSA Facebook Group where we swap recipes, food storage tips, meal plans, and more.
  • Farm Store: Given the COVID-19 situation, we will be offering our members the option to place orders for additional local foods through an Online Farm Store – for pickup when you pick up your CSA share.  You’ll be able to shop for additional organic vegetables, microgreens, herbs, and spring seedlings – as well as pasture-raised meats, dairy products, Juniper Cottage Bake shop bread, and many other local products.
  • Choose to add any of these optional add-ons to your share:
    • Greens Box
    • Localvore Share ($30 weekly package of local meats, dairy products, other local ingredients + a meal plan, offered in two 4-week sessions in June and October)
